He is a great listener and kind person. I did not feel rushed, which I really appreciate. He could inquire about mental/emotional health. His MA asked, but did not respond on the conversation.

May 27, 2020 9:06 AM

One of the best doctor I every had.

May 18, 2020 10:11 PM

Dr.Kim answers all of my concerns and questions whenever I call or visit him. I am very happy with him and his assistants.

May 18, 2020 10:11 PM

March 30, 2020 6:29 AM

still waiting on test results that were ordered by my doctor but had to go to Lutheran general and still haven't heard back on the results because they haven't been released to my doctor it stated still pending. it was supposed to be in in 3 days it's been almost 2 weeks

March 23, 2020 5:04 PM

in all of our talking we forgot to enter the lab order. it was fine as I was equally responsible as I was asking a lot of questions and then we departed. after the x-ray it was a short wait before the lab order went in. There was no issue with waiting on my part. I am extremely happy with this provider and his assistant.

March 23, 2020 5:04 PM

Went in for Diabetic quarterly checkup and also had an injury from a tripping accident. He listened attentively and sent me to x-ray and the lab for the bloodwork.

March 22, 2020 8:39 PM

Dr. Kim is very kind and is very understanding to my medical needs. I feel very comfortable with him. I feel I can always trust him and he is always there answering questions I have. He always has time for my concerns. Always does follow ups on tests. And his assistant, Melissa is also so very nice and kind. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor, I'm very pleased with him.

November 30, 2019 6:22 AM

All primary care physicians are the same. facilitators not really Doctors. all they do is listen never examine you and then refer you to a specialist. Its a game and its sad how you people play with peoples health. its all about volume of patients insurance and $$$. LORD HAVE MERCY.

November 27, 2019 5:50 AM

Dr. Mike Kim is the best, always I want to have a doctor like him, he concerns all - about my health and he pays attention every time I come to see him.

November 26, 2019 9:34 AM

My experience was great. From the receptionist, nurse, to the doctor it was very professional. I'm glad I changed my provider to Dr. Kim.

November 26, 2019 9:34 AM

Dr. Kim listened to my concerns, was very courteous, and is helping get in better health.

November 25, 2019 1:37 PM

Dr. Kim was on time, courteous, and never made me feel rushed while we discussed my wellness and minor issues. I'll look to him as my primary doctor going forward.

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Brief, but complete. What I expected.

September 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Completely insensitive to monetary constraints of a graduate student paying out of pocket for medical treatment. This doctor sought to order needless evaluations that would have drained me financially if I had gone along with his wishes.

September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kim is fantastic. He's not afraid to share his opinions and to look at my health from a different perspective.

September 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kim is a quality physician, and I am fully satisfied with his care.

September 11, 2019 7:00 PM

The provider prescribed me some medication to stop the pain I was experienced. The medication helped stop the pain within 3 days so now I feel very good. Thanks.

August 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent experience this provider is professional and knowledegeble.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Mike was great - very good with communication and I left feeling like I understood my path forward. The office staff were also very helpful. Overall a great experience.

August 20, 2019 7:00 PM

The visit to the office went as smooth and well as I had hoped. I have no real complaints about the visit to the doctors office.

August 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kim is a very caring doctor & I feel very comfortable with him. I like him & his assistant, X a lot.

August 14, 2019 7:00 PM

My only comments are that in every moment consultations to the dr., hospitals, etc., they have treated me the best, thank you very much.

August 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kim is very understanding, explains everything to you, my son likes him because he answers all questions about his health, my dad 91 yrs young likes him too makes suggestions to lower medication has respect for Dr. X my dad's heart specialist in working with him to lower some of his medications. He never rushes to get us out he makes sure he explains what each of us need for our health care. would recommend him highly.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr.Kim is professional,willing to listen to my concern and provide recommendation

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

He was great! I had a rash and pains and didn't know the cause. He diagnosed me with shingles and prescribed antibiotics after explaining the disease, causes, precautions and treatment.

August 10, 2018 7:00 PM

I always feel welcomed and my doctor addresses my health concerns accordingly. Overall, I am satisfied how my doctor handles my health concerns and the performance of his medical team. Keep up the good work!

July 23, 2018 7:00 PM

I was very well treated. I'm thankful for the service.

July 8, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Kim and his assistant always,take time to listen and address my concerns and advise about my chronic health issues and referrals to specialist Dr.Kim also to the time to meet my husband and answer his concerns about my health issues

July 8, 2018 7:00 PM

Overall positive, but felt a little rushed.

June 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Was prescribed a new medication and received the notification from Walgreens before I even knew the results of my blood test. I would appreciate a call or email to explain why prior to the prescription.

May 29, 2018 7:00 PM

He is easy to talk to and I feel confident dealing with him although I sometimes feel like every time I bring some pain issues, the only answer I get is an additional medication instead of explanation of why I am having it and ways to avoid it.

May 18, 2018 7:00 PM

all i will say is ot is the best that i have had in a long time,i trust, beleave in n fully coroperate with any recommendations.

April 30, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr.Kim entirely fullfeeled his mission as primary provider as far as my concern. He has shown the ability to listen, process the patient concern, spent time without showing time restraint and advise patient the best course of action. He's very professional and shows a respect toward his patients

April 22, 2018 7:00 PM

I like my provider he is a good doctor
